Class of 1974 Committee Letter

Fall 2008

Dear Classmates,

Who would have thought 35 years ago that any of us would have gray or thinning hair, extra weight to carry around, and a dozen pair of reading glasses all over the place just to read letters like this? It seems that not so long ago, we were beginning our careers and now some of us are enjoying retirement!

Even if you’ve never attended a reunion before, we hope that you’ll arrange your schedule and take advantage of the opportunity to meet and reconnect with former classmates on the weekend of June 19-21, 2009. We urge you to put those dates on your calendar so that you can be a part of our 35th class reunion at Heidelberg College. It will be a great time to reminisce about those wonderful years at the ‘Berg!

A number of events are being planned that we think you will enjoy including:

  • Alumni Parade and Luncheon on Saturday, June 20th with all classes and a performance by the Alumni Choir
  • Informal reception at the home of Heidi (Schmidt) Brodman
  • Class of 1974 dinner on Saturday evening
  • Worship Service on Sunday morning, June 21st organized by the Class of 1959
  • Presentations by former faculty members and alumni from reunion year classes

We are asking that you also take a few minutes to complete the enclosed Class Reunion Questionnaire and return it to the alumni office to let us know what you have been doing since graduation. The information that you provide will be included in a Memory Book distributed at Alumni Weekend. Please return the form by March 1, 2009, even if you cannot attend the reunion.

You will receive more details on the reunion events as soon as they are finalized. If there are any activities which you would like to have as a part of our class reunion, or if you have any questions, please free to contact Heidi at 419-585-5019 or any member of our committee.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you in June.

Heidi Schmidt Brodman & Deb Roth Kisabeth
For your Reunion Committee
